Karin Lehmann is an artist that likes to explore the materials. Today we focused on the art installation with broken vessels that show her work essence.
Characteristically Karin Lehmann’s practice involves exploration of materials and their properties, combining substance and process until a work is manifested in the designated space. Lehmann applies processes like heat, pressure or gravity to elicit responses from basic materials, such as sheet glass, plaster or clay, and the outcome of the procedures are most likely exhibited in situ. The results are minimal, concise, delicate arrangements.

The artist says she does not talk so often and much about her work with other people. But getting second opinions is always good.
“I often know exactly what I want, and then I do it and then also notice when it is good. But if it is an important exhibition, I am glad to get feedback from someone, so I do not do something I find quite terrible afterward. When you develop new things, you sometimes do not know exactly. This often takes a few months until you can reflect that with enough distance. ”
After the ceramics class, she worked for two years in a factory as a potter. This was a challenge where she learned a lot. At some point, however, it became too one-sided because it was just pure production. It has nothing to do with creativity and intellectually does not challenge it either. She just needs to have material in her hands. Clearly, she has recently realized that the artist’s work is fifty percent office work, something she wasn’t expecting.
